Whether you’re a football fan yourself or your partner is and you just enjoy hanging out while the game’s on, it’s hard to justify putting your wedding planning tasks off every Sunday now that the season’s begun. It’s not that you’re allowed no breaks whatsoever, but just that all those Sundays can add up.
Luckily, our NJ wedding photographers have a few ideas and tips for continuing your wedding planning even on football Sundays. Read on to learn about a few…
Do a lot of your evaluating & reviewing.
While it’s always a good idea to speak with your partner about each and every element of your wedding celebration, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t plenty you can get a head-start on by yourself and then simply discuss together afterwards. So, why not use football game time as an opportunity to get your head-starts.
It could be working on your seating arrangements, listening to some of your first dance song options, reviewing different ceremony reading possibilities, narrowing down your menu item options, doing some organizing, working on a song list for your band, or doing some general internet research. You get the idea.
Just remember to try to take measures so as not to disturb your partner’s enjoying of the game. After all, the whole point of these tips is to allow you to complete some planning tasks while still hanging out with your spouse-to-be and you don’t want to end up creating an annoying or stressful situation.
What better way to avoid creating any unnecessary stress during game time than by using it as an opportunity to sample different cocktails? Think about it, if your partner is going to be having a few drinks during the game anyway, then why not replace whatever the drink choice was going to be with some of your potential wedding cocktails?
On top of it actually being a productive use of time, it’ll also obviously be fun, which is why it’s a perfect planning activity for game day. You and your partner can just relax and “evaluate” while the game’s on, and trust us, this won’t be the type of task that will end up creating a stressful atmosphere.
Just remember to be safe and responsible, and also to be careful about the kinds of cocktails you mix. If you’re going to be trying a bunch of different types of drinks, then you may want to keep the samples fairly small so as to avoid getting sick or uncomfortable.
Work on your DIY elements.
We talk a lot around here about the importance of taking measures to ensure that your wedding celebration is uniquely personal, which is why we’re all for adding some DIY elements to your celebration. Yes, there are some things better left to the pros, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other areas which could absolutely benefit from a more personal touch.
For example, you may want to make your own table cards or party favors, or perhaps you have some ideas about how to design your own invitations or programs. The point is that there are so many areas of your wedding that you can take the DIY approach to. It’s just that, no matter which areas you choose to go the DIY route with, it tends to take time.
That’s why it’s such a good idea to use football Sunday to get moving on whatever DIY projects you have going or are planning on starting. Because take it from us, if you put those kinds of projects off for too long, then you’ll be scrambling to get them done by the finish line and that could negatively affect the results.
